This amplifier has a wonderful synergy with planar headphones. The quality with Audeze LCD2C is outstanding.

Did you use different tubes? Mine doesn't sound great with my Hifiman 400i's.

Thanks. Does your small tube seat all the way down? Mine has about 2mm left to go before the very bottom metal base of the tube would be actually touching the base of the amp itself.

This amp does not do well with 400i or 4xx. Or at least I haven't found a tube combo that works with those headphones. With the 6xx the DV is excellent.

My MP-301 Mk3 Deluxe tube amp sounds fantastic with Hifiman phones. The MP is a little more expensive than the DarkVoice, but I think it's totally worth it. Construction is top notch, it's more powerful (6 watts), has the ability to drive full size speakers, and has numerous tube rolling options. You can probably find one for $250 used.
